Digital Britain aims for Broadband for All

The Government hopes to secure Britain's place at the forefront of the global digital economy, and has its own Digital Britain taskforce with the Department for Culture, Media and Sport to secure this goal. In January 2009 "Digital Britain: The Interim Report" was published, in which the Government stated its aim of 100% broadband coverage for the UK by 2012, with a minimum broadband speed for all of 2 Mbit/s. Of course, mobile broadband is expected to play a major role in making this target a reality, and more radio spectrum will be available for mobile broadband services once the analogue TV signal has been switched off throughout the UK, a process which is due for completion by 2012.
